Luscious Italian recipes bursting with colour and flavour. Bring the spirit of Italy into your kitchen.

Nigella Collection: a vibrant new look for Nigella’s classic cookery books.

This book is borne out of my long love affair with Italy – one that started as a heady teen romance and has weathered the ensuing years intact.

Nigellissima is a celebration of fresh, tasty and unpretentious cooking, inspired by Nigella’s experiences of living, working and learning to cook in Italy.

In 120 quick and easy recipes, Nigella shows you why Italian food has conquered the world, from sunny pasta dishes to rich lasagne and meats, with indulgent ice cream, cakes and puddings and perfect party food.

With warm and witty food writing, mouthwatering photography and a beautiful hardback design, this is a book you will treasure for many years as well as a delicious gift for friends and family.

Pasta – delicious new twists on spaghetti, risotto, lasagne and other favourites
Flesh, fish and fowl – easy meat dishes, chicken recipes and succulent fish
Vegetables and sides – tempting vegetable dishes, salads and potato recipes for any occasion
Sweet things – panna cotta, ice cream and gorgeous Italian baking
An Italian-inspired Christmas – roast turkey, puddings and all the trimmings... Christmas dinner with a Mediterranean twist

Reviews

At her best once again... With dozens of colourful images and easy-to-follow recipes, this book is a fantastic starting point for anybody who wants to try their hand at Italian cuisine

Italia!

In this new book she conjures up, with passionate relish, the warmth, simplicity and directness of Italian cooking, with an Anglo-twist

Mrs D-Daily (Blog)

We love Nigella for her infectious enthusiasm and her pure unadulterated joy in cooking and eating. This book made us ravenously hungry

Look

I wouldn’t eat if it weren’t for Nigella Lawson and Yotam Ottolenghi, so thank God they both put out books this year
